Runnin' Down A Dream
Tom Petty Lyrics


It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
Trees flew by, me and Del were singin' little Runaway
I was flyin'

Yeah, runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream

I felt so good like anything was possible
Hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine

Yeah, runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream

I rolled on, the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever's mine

I'm runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream

Yeah, I'm runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream

Lyrics

It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
Trees flew by, me and Del were singin' little Runaway
I was flyin'[chorus]
Yeah, runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream
I felt so good like anything was possible
Hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine
Yeah, runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dreamWoo-oh
I rolled on, the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever's mine
I'm runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream
Yeah, I'm runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dreamWoo-oh

It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
The trees went by, me and Del were singin'
Little runaway, I was flyin'
Yeah, runnin' down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery
Goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream
Felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
And it was always cold, no sunshine
Yeah, runnin' down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery
Goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream
I rolled on, the sky grew dark
I put my pedal down to make some time
And there's something good waitin' down this road
And I'm picking up whatever is mine
Yeah, runnin' down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery
Goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream
Yeah, runnin' down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery
Goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream

When my 26 year old son was 6, this was his jam! "Play the running down a dream song, Mom." As we drove down on old dirt road, windows down, volume up, sun through the glass, wind in our hair.... Best times ever.

Henry Smart

No one ask

Michael Howorko

For me it reminded me of driving out to the DZ to skydive.

Life of Marie

My sister was the same way. Every time it was on the radio, she had to turn it up.

Icky Steeze

This is crazy because I'm 23 right now and when I was 5 my mom used to play this song on a cassette tape with "free fallin" on it and it randomly popped in my head today after not listening to it since then 😂 I couldn't get it out my head so I ended up asking my mom and she sent this video to me 🤣 now that I'm older I can appreciate it so much more

Idiot and his idiotic brain

I’ve had those times before

Still,...the most under-rated guitar solo, in the history of modern rock music.

Mary Berg

That guitar solo is one of the BEST! It’s like freedom…like flying.

disagree. You're just new "hear" young blood

Noxema Jackson

What makes you believe it's underrated?
